in stanford, florida, lynchberg and fairfax, virginia, columbus, ohio, and manchester, ohio, and it wouldn't be an election without a legal mess in florida. voters reporting lines up to seven hours long at some south florida early polling stations. but at the end of the day, tomorrow, it will all possibly be about ohio. the president holding a slim lead in the buckeye state in the polls. in this exclusive interview with cnn, john boehner of ohio says he believes that his state could just swing red. >> polls don't win the elections, voters do. i've been around ohio. i've done this trip around ohio for a lot of presidential races in the past. and i think ohioans vote with their wallets. that's why i think romney will win on tuesday. >> we're blanketing the battle grounds with our cnn reporters. john berman, of course, following that for us this morning. >> good morning. first up is florida. swing state considered a must win particularly for mitt romney. the most recent polling there has been mixed with some showing a romney lead. some polls showing the president's on top. we're going to turn
, invested time, invested money, did not pick up the state. what's important is virginia, florida and ohio. mike, you've got some inside dope on virginia and florida in particular. >> yeah. just to set the stage for the drama of the next hour or so, the mitt romney math starts in florida, virginia, then moves on to ohio. from the war rooms of both campaigns, virginia is -- [inaudible] obama. now, the states are very close in the actual count, and we're trying to be clear here on our coverage about when a state is actually called and what the campaigns are doing, but we're also trying to pull back the curtain a little bit for you on what the campaigns are thinking. before the calls are made, what we're hearing. and just to give you a sense of what the mood is among republicans tonight, one of the top republicans in the country just e-mailed me talking about 2014, says there's another race in two years. so that tells you that the top republicans are hearing things from various states that aren't encouraging. florida, where the romney math starts, 50/50. hundreds of votes out of millions cast
against florida. they handled that. florida an ugly game against missouri, but they won. a couple teams idle in south carolina and florida state and louisville, do you know they gave up the opening kickoff touchdown to temple? temple ran it back, 7-0 and charlie strong's team led by their quarterback, blasted temple, and the end result 45-17. now, that's a good story for you, folks, louisville and charlie strong still undefeated leading the big east. >> gus: so, with one tick remaining in this game, andre heidari will send it away. and heidari sends it into the end zone for a touchback. >> charles: you know, that's a classy move right there. do you know why? the onside kick is one of the more physically punishing plays in football, and the result's not going to change even if you get it because the clock's going to run out. and i think for lane kiffin to recognize that, not put any players in a punishing spot again, i got to tip my cap to him for that one. i think it's a class move from keeping the kids from having another hit, another contact. >> gus: well, disappointing evening for us
? talk to me about your voting process. florida took a long time to get their numbers and. caller: it did. it was not that i tried to call, i have been sick and not been able to. i want to say one thing -- c- span has improved so much by asking people to give their zip codes. this keeps serial collars limited. the one recommendation i really want c-span to be diligent about his keeping callers on the question. they will call in and want to answer their own agenda or whatever. please try to retarget them back the question is.e first of all, i do not think we need to speed up the voting process. i think we need to make it better. i am not a real big fan of early voting except for people disabled or in the military. i think it does increase the chance for fraud. host: how would you make it better? caller: i confess i do not have the answers, but there are many states like massachusetts that do not have early voting at all. would you look at the end of the election and look at the problems, they did not have really very many problems in their state. there are other states like that as well. h
, already in the race, which has been called in favor of the president. >> all right. florida, take a look there. this is another race that was considered to be very, very important for both candidates. we have been following all along, ohio and now florida. still too close to call, as you can see. very, very close. we will let you know how that goes. >> just a difference of 65,000 votes there. and there is a level at which there would be an automatic recall. so we will keep an eye on the difference number for you throughout the early morning now. >> as exciting as it is to have gregg and me here with you at this hour, we wouldn't just give you us. we have a super panel. you are going to want to stick around the next couple of hours. joining us on the set, pollster for president cartedder is here and the former adviser to the democratic new jersey frank lautenberg and fox news analyst. and the bureau chief with talk radio news service. i can tell you from hanging out in the green room, they are all fired up. should we get startd? >> let's do it. pat, let me can you, this was predicted to b
? >> they are still counting votes in florida and -- [inaudible] bears and even greener light. i apologize. i saw that little green light and you know, it was too subtle for me. here is what we know. we certainly know that the president was reelected and we know democrats have picked up seats in the house and the senate which is contrary to what anybody in washington i think god even as -- we know they house will stay roughly the same so with his breaking news i bring you know that returns from florida and i like to spend more time on why he did this happen and what does that mean for us going forward? first, i share the admiration all around for president obama's campaign team. they were technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of the campaign team and that is to identify and turn out voters. they planned it, they executed it and every step of the way they knew what votes they needed and they went out and got them. they began weeks before election day thanking favorable votes in states where they have our people on the ground preplanned so again technically a superb operation and
in port richey, florida, let me read from this from "the washington post." host: andy, with that in the mix, what do you think? retirement reform on the table? caller: i feel that the real problem, anyway, is that when you have jobs in this country and you work for, say a big company, something like that, they pay for half of your social security and medicare and you pay for the other half out of your tax money. you send jobs out of the country, who is going to pay for it? these jobs have to be brought back here. are they kidding me? host: how does that relate to our topic? caller: medicare and medicaid, if there were more jobs here. host: so, do not touch medicare and medicaid? caller: got to bring jobs back. the people would pay for it, the companies would pay for it. host: we will keep talking about all of this this morning. president obama meeting with labor leaders this morning. here is a list of who will be at this meeting from "the associated press." host: i want to go back to the news that we started with, general john allen. "the washington post" has that stor
for ohio and florida so the lgbt support for obama is bigger in both ohio and florida bandit is winning margin so you can credibly argue that vote mattered a lot and if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida, you start to think about a very different election. and then i looked at polls and said what if romney and obama had more -- the lgbt vote was 76 obama, 20 to two romney and quite frankly it has been about that -- it's been roughly 3-1. obama, that's the highest it's been quite frankly it's been high all through. but what if they split more or less evenly over romney got a little bit more? if romney had 151% of the lgbt vote he would have won ohio, florida and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. so, in florida all he had to do was win a little over a third of the lgbt vote to win those states. so, while i don't think that -- in the way that we are not talking about immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy on, i don't think it's quite that level of impact but a little bit of movement in the
will be officially the winter in florida. -- the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we plan 4, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same% of the electorate as in 2008. we got if you got% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, boating rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battle ground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino vote since 1996. in florida increase from 14% in 2008 to 17% in 2012. we increased our vote share in florida fr
: boise is now in the east, huh? >> boise is in the east, san diego is in the east and south florida and central florida are also up in the east. yes. it makes no sense at all. and, by the way, the big ten has 14 teams now. >> jeff: (laughs) i was going to say map makers have to get to work but so do mathematicians. john feinstein, thank you so much. >> thank you, jeff. >> suarez: again, the major developments of the day: internet and cell phone service was down in syria, and there was fighting near the airport in damascus, as rebels battled government forces. democrats and republicans accused each other of refusing to talk specifics about how to avoid the fiscal cliff. house speaker john boehner said there's been no progress in the last two weeks. and the u.n. general assembly voted to recognize palestine as a non-member observer state. the u.s. was one of only nine states voting no. and, you've heard the term "glacial pace"? not exactly, says one director who's scaled enough ice, to know better. hari sreenivasan has more. >> sreenivasan: filmmaker james balog spent years documentin
? florida is still undecided. election workers are counting the ballots still. they blame the problem on a lengthy ballot which contained 11 state constitutional amendment questions. they also received thousands of absentee ballots which take longer to count. some voters who had to wait in line for hours to cast their ballots say there weren't even enough machines or poll workers. >> this wasn't only a presidential election. a lot of other stuff that still needs to be voted on, so people stand in line, they stay there. >>> tom is tracking a storm that hit the northeast overnight. we'll tell you who got the worst of it. >>> on first glance, it looks like a picture of earth. but what makes a new planet so super? >>> and next, the parents getting a little too much enjoyment out of >>> thanks a lot, mom and dad. a little girl was posing for a picture at the zoo when a lion decided to get a little closer look. it snuck up behind her. look at her posing for the picture. then she turns out, she screams, slams on the glass and then skips away. at least she slammed on the glass. the lion is li
vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70,000 votes. i think that reveals the politics with the cuban-american community may be changing significantly. again, this probably should not have come as a great surprise or shock to people following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement from obama with cuba. from obama point of view, i think there has been some steps made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans and making travel more flexible. there's a sense not much has changed from the latin perspective. perhaps in the second term, there may be more of a change moving forward. on this issue, we also have to look carefully at the composition of the new congress and some of the pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress that held important positions that will no longer be holding them in the next couple of years and the senator from texas, also a cuban-american. congress obviously will be critical in this whole issue, but
thing for the american people. host: we will move onto native who is a republican in florida. caller:my name is nat. i crossed the aisle to the democratic side. the reason for it is because i believe the president of's agenda is on a positive role. it takes time to correct the course of this country. by the time his actions of three years ago catches up, it will probably be his sixth year in office. then you will probably start seeing the yield of all of the effort he put an two or three years ago. some of us really want to be able to eat that big bird. i think we woke up in the morning and realize some people are going to have to realize how to season their crow and enjoy eating at. if we do not continue to stay on the president's course, we will find our difficulties will not and that quickly. host: the reelected president called for bipartisanship and addressing for priorities over the next four years. reducing the deficit, overhauling the tax code, revising immigration laws, and reducing the nation's dependence on foreign oil. some key elements as he sets out for a second term. w
times." reporting on general petraeus. our republican line from florida, what is your optimism level? caller: first of all, i am a snowbird from west chester, pa ennsylvania. host: i am going to put you on hold. you are breaking up. i think your cell phone coverage or your connection is not that good. the producer will get on the line with you. daniel in louisiana, the independence line. caller: hello and thank you for taking my call. i am very optimistic and very happy that obama won. i believe the country is going to move forward. he is not going to let the partisanship bring down this country. i always tell people how i came to this country when everybody was talking about reagan. how the deficit was going so much that our grandchildren would have to pay for it. then bush came in and this is the problem we have. i am also concerned about the people who call themselves christians. when you hear them talking, they are more hateful than any other human being. i am very optimistic about this country. host: where are you from originally? caller: i am from nigeria. host: carol, try agai
, pennsylvania, virginia, and florida in the span of just eight hours today. >>> today is the last day for d.c. voters to cast their ballots before most people vote on tuesday. early voting officially ends in the district tonight. last week people waited in long lines to cast their ballots. if you're heading out you have from 8:30 this morning until 9:00 tonight to cast your vote. or else wait until election day on tuesday. meantime it is also the last day for in person absentee voting in virginia. the polls are open now and stay open until 5:00 this evening. >>> early voting is officially over in maryland and now some are worried about expected crowds on election day. in prince georges county long lines were the norm as people tried to cast their ballots before tuesday. some waited three or four hours to cast their vote. around 56,000 people have taken advantage of early voting in the county. that's just 10% of registered voters. >> the facilities we are using are not -- don't have the capacity that we need to really conduct early voting. >> despite the long waits administrators say tuesday
, in florida, virginia, less so in colorado. the black population is fairly small. nevada, definitely. the right in the country and especially the ultraconservatives in the republican party had pushed african-americans and hispanics together. they have a politics where sort of a nasty braggadocio, if you watch the primaries, where you have to be slashed and burn in how you attack your enemies, that very much does not go over with hispanics. some of the things that were said -- i have spoken to a well known latino pollster about this. he said a white person has friends and extended family -- that number is 8. a hispanic person has that number at about 50. if you are a slash and burn person, that is your style, you are not going to go over well with latinos. african americans and latinos have been pushed together. if you look at it in class terms, african-americans, the largest proportion of african americans and latinos are working class and have similar interests in terms of government. >> any additional questions? >> you were talking about the turnout during the midterms. you did no
election and, of course, you know they're still counting those votes in florida today. part of the problem really is money. experts say we are just not spending enough to ensure an efficient process, efficient elections and tell you. what there's some conspiracy theorists who think that there are some entrenched politicians who think that inefficient elections are good because maybe they discourage poor people who cannot afford to go out and spend six hours waiting to vote. >> another problem. if it only happens every two years, we don't think about it very much. >> that's true. >>> well, guys, in maryland the multi-million dollar bet on question 7 paid off and now local officials are hoping expanded gambling in the state will provide even bigger payoffs. >> this is a good thing for the state, that if we're already in the gaming business, we need to be competitive nationwide and to have a destination resort that can bring in an additional $200 million to the state and $40 million additional revenues to prince george's county was a good thing for all of us. >> now whether you're happy about
, and that could be especially important in battleground states such as ohio, pennsylvania and florida. while much of the focus has been on the economy, green says here at the end of the campaign, other social issues may play an important role. >> there's some strong incentives for the parties to reach out for secondary issues. issues like women's rights, religious liberty, the environment, foreign policy. because if voters are evenly divided on their most salient issue, the economy, they're going to make their decision perhaps on some of these secondary issues. issues that they don't regard as the most important, but they might not be able to choose between governor romney and president obama on something like unemployment, so some of these other issues may matter. >> both candidates have attempted to apply moral and religious language to their economic policies. >> i think it's, frankly, not moral for my generation to keep spending massively more than we take in, knowing those burdens are going to be passed on to the next generation and they're going to be paying the interest and the principal a

for the popular vote in the national vote happened for ohio and florida, so the lgbt support for obama is bigger and ohio and florida and his winning margin. you can credibly argue that that vote mattered a lot, and if you think about an election where obama loses, ohio and florida, you think about a different election. then i looked at what if romney and obama had more or less split? quite frankly, it has been about that since clinton, roughly 3-1. that is the highest it has been, but quite frankly it has been high all through. what if they split it, more or less evenly, or romney got a little bit more? if romney had won 51%, they would have one of ohio, florida, and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the president. and ohio and florida, all he had to do was win a little over 1/3 of the lgbt vote to win. while i do not think that suggests that suddenly in the way be are now talking about like immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy, i do not think it is quite that level of impact, but a little bit of movement in oflgbt vote in key states,
's got to stop. they're all doing it. and it's just major corruption. host: fran, jacksonville, florida. yes, we're listening. caller: oh, thank you. i was calling, wanted to know if i heard that excerpt from the wall street journal article correctly, that the president might be relenting on his pledge to not sign anything that didn't have that increase with the upper 1%. host: well, i think it's a little more nuanced than that. it says here again, here's the headline. obama is flexible of highest tax rates. and what it says is that it's not so much that he won't sign anything, it's more of how high the tax rates would go. so does that -- how do you see that? how do you reed that? caller: i would really be disappointed in that, because he's been fighting for that since the beginning. he relented a few years ago in order to save the unemployment insurance for the unemployed people and some other stipulations that were being held hostage by the g.o.p. but he doesn't have to do that any more. and right after he did that, they called that his tax breaks for the wealthy. and he absolutely di

carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
